I edit out all of the tuning tracks on my hard drive copies of the show. I have a home theater pc running windows media center and sometimes play my entire library on random and it is very annoying to have a tuning or crowd noise track come up. I re-number all of the other tracks accordingly and also standardize the track names and "plays into" notations. I also add a small notation to the track name for the end of the first set which is really only an issue for the earlier years. The later shows it is fairly obvious from the set list but I kept the notation anyway. When I burn to disk I try to keep the second set jam as intact as possible. Sometimes that means a short disc 2 or disc 3 depending on the show but cd's are cheap if you buy them on sale. For me storage of the cd's becomes more of an issue than the cost of the media. Nothing is worse than splitting up a good China -> Rider or Help -> Slip! -> Frank.
